the Power Decade
susan Saunders


The menopause is a time of change, of unexpected health challenges, of rollercoaster emotions and unprecedented shifts in how we feel physically and emotionally. But we can emerge wiser than before, and stronger than we know.

The decade after the average menopause transition, from our 50s to 60s, is the most important for a woman’s health. We are ageing in an environment that doesn’t nurture midlife women and the reproductive hormones which protected our health for so long have waned. But this is also an opportunity to power ahead, to decide who we are and how we want to live as we face the future.

There are huge positives post-menopause: it’s time to create the adventures – large and small – we want in our lives. The decisions, and choices, we make now will define how we age. And the foundation for this? Our health, physical and mental.

In The Power Decade, health coach and age-well advocate Susan Saunders presents a comprehensive guide to wellness for women in their 50s and 60s. She interviews medical experts and reveals stories of inspiring women who are powering up post-menopause. Also included are impactful, practical tips – on mindset, meals and movement – so you can create your own power decade.

Susan talks to experts about all areas of a woman’s life and looks at:

*What’s happening in your body post-menopause
*What is good nutrition post-menopause?
*How to exercise post-menopause
*How to get your mindset on track to create your Power Decade
*How to get motivated for the best possible health
